Isa Rosso, a SOCCOM postdoc from Scripps Institution of Oceanography is currently aboard SOCCOM’s third float deployment cruise of the season in the South Indian Ocean, which is being carried out in partnership with the University of Tasmania on Australia’s R/V Investigator.

The cruise departed from Fremantle, Australia, and is headed to Hobart, Tasmania. Along the way Isa is deploying 7 SOCCOM biogeochemical (BGC) floats  (2 are already at work) - you can keep up with the cruise through her blog and via posts from other Investigator crew members here.  You can also take a virtual tour of the Investigator at the CSIRO website.
